    I loved this Barratta salad. Let's see the main course. The oyster was OK, I just prefer cocktail over mignonette.

    Girls who work there in the restaurant were extremely impolite. It was 17:50 but we were told to leave the place "because it opens at 6". Not a welcoming atmosphere at all. Sorry not sorry

    Mata Hari opened its door right in the heart of Amsterdam’s Red Light District. A tricky decision to say the least, because Mata Hari wasn’t looking for drunk tourists on their terrace. This place.. Read more

    It great reviews on here, but quite frankly - I don't know why. Food was ok, definitely not great. Menu looks like there's a very young chef heading the kitchen, very eager to prove himself.

    Cute place for drinks and bites. Kitchen took forever since there was a wedding party but they didn't inform us until way after we got our starters. The food was decent but drenched in garlic.

    Food as is a heresy to the real Italian cuisine, but let's look on the bright side - people who go there don't go to eat but to be seen and hang out with Ams hipsters - if that's what you're into :)
